'Praying we get him': Some Chelsea fans demand Abramovich signs 'amazing' player after report drops

A portion of Chelsea supporters on social media were eager for Roman Abramovich to whip out his wallet so he can sign Robert Lewandowski.

ESPN reported that the Blues have emerged as candidates to secure Bayern Munich’s marvellous striker this summer.

Lewandowski is contracted until 2023, however doubts still linger over his future with the Bundesliga behemoths.

Chelsea fans thought the Polish international would fit right in at Stamford Bridge.

Here’s how they reacted on Twitter:

It is no secret that Chelsea are after a new centre-forward to lead them into the 2021/22 adventure.

There are few better in the business than Lewandowski.

He has outscored Erling Haaland, Romelu Lukaku and Harry Kane, three of Chelsea’s potential transfer targets.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi also lie in Lewandowski’s goalscoring shadow, such is his pedigree.

If the Blues were to bank on the 32-year-old machine, they would apparently need to conjure up £60m (ESPN) in cash.

For a club who spent over £200m ahead of this current season, a sum like that, for a player like that, shouldn’t be an issue.

However, it’s because of their major spending spree that Abramovich may be reluctant to fork out eight figures for anyone, no matter the individual.

But if Chelsea are serious on signing a new man to lead their line, few can match Lewandowski’s stature.
